Training is a crucial tool in improving the quality of care received by burn patients across the world.
All Interburns training programmes have been designed ‘from the ground up’ specifically for health care professionals in Low and Middle Income Countries, taking into account the usual level of resources and training available to those who treat burn patients. All our training programmes are linked to the international standards for burn services that Interburns has developed, so that training is targeted to help local teams achieve sustainable and measurable improvements in the care they provide to patients.
Our core course Essential Burn Care (EBC) is a comprehensive course that teaches all aspects of essential burn care, ranging from the active prevention of burn injury and first aid, through to acute management and rehabilitation. The course is appropriate for surgeons, doctors, nurses and therapists without specialist training in burn care. Interburns also has a Basic Burn Care (BBC) course that is aimed at non-health professionals and has a particular focus on prevention and first aid at a community level. Our Advanced Burn Care (ABC) training is a modular programme that offers advanced clinical training to specialists treating burns, on topics such as nursing, rehabilitation, surgery and nutrition.
All our training is guided by our core philosophy: that all burn patients can receive good quality care despite limited resources.
